Evento

Uncle to Keberes D.

Evento (pronounced eh VENT oh) is a Pure Spanish Stallion, PRE, from Spain, and he was ridden in the 1996 Olympic Games by Ignacio Ramblas in the event of dressage. Evento was born in 1985 and is a son of Leviton, and a half brother to Granadino XI. He was bred by and stands at stud for the Yeguada Militar in Spain.

In 1994 the Andalusian horses Evento, Flamenco, and Albus participated for the first time at the grand prix level in international dressage. All three horses obtained excellent results and qualified to compete in the European Championship, and ultimately to participate in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

The Spanish team obtained sixth in team rankings at the Olympics and Evento scored 11th in the individual dressage competition.

EventoEvento was featured on the cover of the 1997 Issue I International Andalusian and Lusitano Horse magazine.

The IALHA printed several hundred posters from a photograph of EVENTO taken by Susan Sexton at the Olympics in Atlanta. The posters were given away as a breed promotion and turned out to be the big hit of the USDF Annual Convention held in Albuquerque, NM. In fact, the posters were so popular that there are some now hanging in the USDF headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska.

 Linda Zang, the American judge at the Olympics signed many of the posters during her presentation and told the rest of the dressage world what an impressive horse EVENTO was. She even had a video tape of some of his tests. Another famous speaker, rider and Olympian, Hilda Gurney, also told her audience of nearly four hundred that the Andalusian was very suitable for dressage.
